“…the perception of one work affects the reception of the next one. Something perceived as an abstract structure or a fictional scene is altered by a flow of mental images, one melting into the other, from one work to the next. The observer is guided by an imaginative perception and by his own hypothesis about what he has just seen. The exhibition space is like a dynamic stage, on which each work stands for itself and creates relations with other works. This context allows the observer to store ideas and instigates the multiplication of these ideas, imaginary spaces and forms.”
